“One Last Coffee at the Midway Diner” byDavid G. Zsidoprovides a nostalgic history of the rise and decline of the Rutland Diner, from its opening in 1949 to its closing in 1996.
The Diner provided food and beverages at all hours of the day, seven days a week. With ample parking and a gas station it attracted both locals and truckers. With waitresses familiar with their names, it became a favorite gathering place.
This lively account brings the Diner and its customers tolife with numerous illustrations, including the author’s“Gypsy” a 1951 Mack LJT. An enjoyable jaunt downmemory lane.
